Classical concert features string quartet sampler

The Mother Lode Friends of Music, the regional organization presenting classical music concerts, opens the new year with a concert of chamber music on Sunday, Jan. 27 starting at 2 p.m.in the Sutter Creek Church of the Nazarene, 14050 Ridge Road in Sutter Creek.

The program offers a “sampler” of string quartets by some of music history’s most famous names: Mozart, Shostakovitch and Leclair, as well as an unpublished work composed especially for and performed before President Woodrow Wilson just after World War I.

Specifically, the program opens with the Sarabande and Tambourin of Jean-Marie Leclair, a Baroque composer who is considered the founder of the French violin school.

Mozart’s delightful “Divertimento in B flat,” written when the composer was only 16 years old, follows.

The lushly romantic Andante appassionato was composed by Mario Frosali, a graduate of the Florence Conservatory of Music who later became one of the 20th century’s most prominent violin makers as well as a conductor.

Two short compositions of Dmitri Shostakovitch, one of the giants of contemporary music, complete the set.

The quartets are performed by two sets of musicians who have performed many times for Friends of Music audiences but never together.

They are violinist Corina Stoian and cellist Alexandru Dumitrache, both Romanian-born with distinguished international careers. They now make their homes in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Joining them are the husband and wife performing couple, violinist Joseph Gold and violist Debbie Dare, residents of Piedmont who have toured extensively in Europe, Asia and the United States.

In the program’s second half, the quartet will join pianist and Friends of Music president Ron Brickman in a performance of  “Quintet for piano and strings in A major” by Czech composer Antonin Dvorak.

The concert is free and open to the public.

For more information call 209-293-4227 or consult the organization’s Website at mlfm.org.
